Certificates of Deposit

Add our CDs to your interest collection.

One of the first things you need to know about managing your finances wisely is that you shouldn’t let your money just sit. So if you have money lounging around in a checking account or savings account, you might want to put it into one of our Personal Certificates of Deposit, where it can earn a higher rate of interest.

 

What is a Certificate of Deposit or CD Account?

A certificate of deposit (CD) is another way for you to watch your money grow at a higher interest rate. It is similar to a savings account in that it helps you grow your money but CDs are a time deposit. Your deposited funds are set for a fixed term and can be used once the certificate of deposit has matured (fixed term is complete).

All of our personal certificates of deposits earn interest daily and have flexible terms to fit your financial needs. And when the CD matures, you can renew it for another consecutive term or have the funds transferred to your Checking, Savings, Additional Savings or Money Market Account.

Here are some other helpful facts about our CDs

  • Maturity notices sent 30 days from maturity date
  • Interest compounds monthly or can be transferred monthly to your Checking, Savings, Additional Savings Account or Money Market Account
  • 6, 12, 24, 36 or 60 month terms available
  • Joint ownership and beneficiaries permitted
  • 10-day grace period for cancellation of renewal at maturity

    What is a maturity date? Why is it important?

    The maturity date is the date on which the term of the CD expires. At this time the CD is either renewed for another term at the current rate, or the funds are transferred into any share and the CD is closed. It is important because the rate remains fixed up to this point.
